I met Chris at the airport and got the plane out - his plane's off to Fresno with the other owner, so he drove his Miata over. We flew up to Auburn to see if the grill was open, and despite the "Open" sign in the window, it wasn't. I had a guy run up behind us when we were on finals, and he got a bit huffy at having to go around because we were still on the runway when he wanted to land. He shouldn't have turned base leg so soon after us, really... we'd extended slightly to allow a Mooney to land in front of us.
We flew back above the canyon (not right down into it) so Chris could (hopefully) take some pictures, then headed back. Due to the Northerly wind, we lined up to land on 33, then got off the runway to allow a guy to take off on 15, despite the other plane waiting to take off on 33. It was one of those days.
We went to Subway for lunch, and Ken joined us, then I went home to cover the Australian timezone.
